Apartment garage breaker upgrade

1346 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Paragon
I'm curious if anyone knows what code is for Apartment garages. We're considering upgrading the breaker for our workshops which are out of a few of the garage bays located on the property.
I'm located in Colorado. We have an air compressor that keeps tripping the breaker. I'm assuming its a 15A. We were considering going to a 20A. Wanted some professional opinions.

Changing a breaker to 20A requires replacing the wire from #14 to #12. You can't just swap breakers. And most tenants are not allowed to make such changes without owner approval.
